Sounds nice. laugh I'm just hoping my 5850 will run it OK. PC will definitely be the platform to play it on.

I have a 4850 and am thinking BF3 will be replacement time!

I got an i7 950, new mobo and 6 gig ddr3 last nov but held off the graphics card as black ops ran fine with it (for the 2-3 weeks I played it!). But I want BF3 running as well as it possibly can smile

After watching BF3 demos i assumed they were the PC version and thought they looked amazing, so this link was a surprising revelation.

BF3 and the other big titles are probably the exception mind, but it doesn't bode well for future releases.

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

Not really surprising, it's one of the reasons that GFX, and indeed gaming in general, haven't really come that far since the last time the big two released their consoles in what? 2005? That and cruddy controls.

Damn consoles ruining the industry tongue
